Hi everyone, happy new year and all that.
The Xmas period saw some good sailing over here, only a few days but very good when the wind was here. The best days were just after New Year at Flag Beach, with northwesterly winds and a good swell for some epic port tack jumping sessions. No pics unfortunately as the action was a bit far out to sea, but loads of decent stunting going down, total carnage, I love it!
On the clinics front, I am doing a week-long clinic the last week in April in conjunction with PuraVida Boardriders, which is going to be a blast. We will be providing accomodation, transport, tuition, entertainment and catering and, of course, LOADS of time on the water. April is traditionally one of the best times of the year over here for wind and waves, so it should be great! For the complete lowdown on the clinic check it out on the website here http://www.puravidaboardriders.co.uk/ . If anyone is interested they can get in touch with me through my email firstname.lastname@example.org or Jim on the PuraVida site. Definitely one for the diary.
Welcome to the site!
Aswell as regular features and news updates from Fuerte, I am going to be using this site to promote my windsurfing clinics.
After 15 years on the island,having competed in the PWA freestyle world cup and now representing Fanatic Boards and North Sails, I have decided to give something back to the sport which has given me so much over the years.
My aim is to provide clinics "tailor-made"for each individual, with a strong emphasis on practical in-the-water instruction, backed up by on-the-beach tuition and video analysis. The consistent conditions here in Fuerte make learning so much easier and, perhaps equally important, more fun than the typically inconsistent, cold UK - why not come over for a week and improve your windsurfing by a year!!!
I can help with any manoeuvres from carve-gybe through to advanced jumping and freestyle, just email me with your wish list and we'll take it from there! Over the next few months, I am going to be video-chronicling manoeuvres which you can check out on the right in my tricktionary sections. This will give you some idea of the things we can work on, or, if you can't make it over here, you may find them useful to help understand and break down a manoeuvre you would like to learn (hopefully, the slow-mo will help in this respect!).Just click on the trick and scroll down..........
Anyway, keep checking it out as I have loads more in my bag of tricks and will be updating as and when I get the footage.
If you're interested, e-mail me on email@example.com
See ya in Fuerte?
